SHOOTING SHOW TESTIMONIALS

Read the thoughts of other visitors and Exhibitors

“I just wanted to say how brilliant I thought this year’s show was at the NEC.

One day I went by train and then the next I drove and both days access was easy and well organised. Holding the show at the NEC has moved the show to another level. Many people were saying that it was very like IWA. All the stand staff I spoke to said they’d done some excellent trade and we were happy at our stand too!”

Matt Clark, Sporting Gun

“Just a quick note to express our appreciation and congratulations to you all on a fantastic show!

The new venue was absolutely perfect and you guys have definitely raised the bar for the industry and demonstrated to the anti-shooting protagonists and the mis-informed that the shooting & countryside conservation contingency is a professional body that deserves to be listened to.

We hope the rest of the industry can lengthen their stride and demonstrate the professionalism and image you have started.”

Mark, Rifleman Firearms

“I’m sure you have already been inundated with praise for the Show-but let me add to it.

You and John took a huge risk with such a prestigious venue as the NEC-and it paid off in spades. Not merely in terms of visitor numbers and visitor spend-both of which were very good- but, more importantly, in my view, in terms of bringing legitimacy and validation to our sport-and particularly, the Airgunning sub-division of the sport.

Suddenly we are up there with ‘The Spring Fair’, ‘Crufts’ and the ‘Motor Show’-sharing the same hall and facilities with Westly Richards-not stuck in a sparsely heated and illuminated ‘Cow Shed in the Country’ ! This will give the Industry a much higher profile with the public at large.”

Mike Hurney , The Shooting Party

“I would just like to personally thank your team for the success of the British Shooting Show

As you are aware we work closely with you regularly with marketing etc, and have found you personally to be one of the highlights of the advertising sector of the UK Gun Trade.

Always happy to oblige, understand our needs, and go above and beyond for everyone.

The team at the show also couldnt be more helpful, always checking we are ok, and assisting where they could”

Paul Stewart , Scott Country International

“I just wanted to drop you a note to say what a great event we had. We had a very good event with many positive sales made. Hope you were pleased too.

We’re looking forward to next year so please do send bookings forms as soon as you have them”

Bettws Hall

“Just wanted to email to say what a great show you guys put on this year at the NEC we had a fantastic show and the facilities were good, a fantastic turn out, and the response we had from customers attending our stand was really positive with the new venue. Thanks again and well done for a great show”

Luxury Tweed Company

“I wanted to get in touch to say well done and thank you.

The show was, as always, great for us and the move to the NEC was 100% the right decision. I just wanted to let you know we are happy to sign up for 2019 already for the same space and location we had this year”

Carl Zeiss

“Thanks once again for delivering such a well organised event as last weekends at the NEC. Please pass on our sincere gratitude to your entire team who performed superbly”

BSA Guns

“Congratulations on a fantastic Show. A leap of faith to change venues and your decision was certainly justified I can’t believe how busy it was: it exceeded anything we envisaged. No cribs about the organization everything went well in the Halls.

Just a quick mail to say thank you to you and your team for all the effort you put into the British Shooting Show this weekend. I can only speak for myself but this show seemed to run smoothly from setup to takedown and we were far busier than last year.

The stands at the show this year have also stepped up their game in terms of the professional face they are portraying to the public which is pleasing to see and a good sign for the future of our industry.

Thank you again”

Mark Swift , RUAG

“I would formally like to record my heartfelt thanks to you, and everyone else at The Great British Shooting Show, for the fantastic service and support that we received at Birmingham.

Trade at this years show was phenomenal for us,   – you delivered on your side of the deal.

A fantastically organised event, and we certainly reaped the benefits.

Thank you very very much,   – your hard work and organisation was very much appreciated!!!

Thank you all again,   – and please do pass on my sincere thanks to everyone.”

Cluny Country Sports

“Just a quick note to say a huge well done for putting on yet again another brilliant show. I thought the new venue was excellent and by the sounds of it many of the retailers had an excellent weekend”

NGO

“Just a quick note to say thank you for a great show. We did very well over the 3 days and our return to the show was clearly welcomed by our members, the public and other traders.

Looking forward to next year!”

BASC

Once again you and the team built it and they came, many congratulations to all.

Holland & Holland

“Just a quick line to once again thank you for putting together a great event Our industry deserves to take centre stage and with your vision and hard work, I think between us all, we managed to pull it off. Well done everybody, now back in the office first thing tomorrow to follow up on all those promises made over the weekend.”

Claire West , Air Arms

“I wanted to say a big thank you to you both and congratulate you and your team – what a success the BSS has been.

We are surely set to be hosting the biggest event in Europe soon if the first one was anything to go by – what a fantastic set up, couldn’t be better.

Your bravery, sheer hard work and commitment have paid off and we’re grateful and proud to be part of it.

Thank you so much and well done!”
